Aids To Hearing

signed contentView BSL
What kinds of aids to hearing do deaf children in Scotland use or have access to? How many deaf children in Scotland have a cochlear implant? How many have access to radio aids? How many make use of other aids to hearing? This information is presented in the Aids to Hearing ADPS charts.

Update, April 2006 (no BSL translation available as yet for this update)

The following table shows the changing picture between 2000 and 2004.  Over these years the content of the annual questionnaires was refined to reflect developments in technology.  In 2001/02, the category ‘acoustic hearing aid’ was split into ‘analogue’ and ‘digital’ options.  Then, in 2002/03, a further subcategory of ‘programmable analogue’ was added. 

Note that the questionnaire return rates are slightly less in 2003/04; this should be taken into account in relation to any downward trends in year four.
